Gone fishin with LibWorm - Thing 17

It is comforting to be able to search a site where most of the information is valid. Thoughts posted by others in the library field and the different published articles agree with outside data I had already researched. This will be valuable when planning projects within the library!

One of the searches I did was on Cuecat scanners. The search was done in all areas with the first six results identical. That’s unusual for any Internet searches; usually the results vary to some degree.

When searching on Little Elm Public Library all kinds of articles came up except what I wanted until I changed the search to Phrase. Then two articles, 1) Collaborative Text Messaging Reference project , a project just starting and 2) Teen Tech Week Display winners from 2007 ALA Weblog were our teens won Honorable Mention. I also added this feed to my Google Reader so I can keep up with other articles about our library.
